Back from Harrogate Bead Fair. What a weekend!

Early start on Saturday and a rapid set up for the stall when we got there. The fair was busy both days and we had a steady stream of customers.

There was a distinct difference between the 2 days – Saturday people were, on the whole, out for a look round and impulse buy. Sunday saw serious buyers, knowing exactly what they wanted.

All were complimentary about our beads and it is a great feeling hearing customers ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ over the beads.

We stayed in a smashing B & B with great food and wonderfully friendly and helpful staff. Good find, that one!

The drive home was arduous, chiefly because we were tired and there was rain and traffic queues.

Graeme had a lovely dinner waiting for us and that was really welcome!
